Introduction: DIY Combined Barbecue and Wood Fired Oven
I wanted to show you my latest project for the country house. The old barbecue disintegrated due to the hot and cold winters of northern Italy. So I decided to build it while saving as much as possible. The total cost was € 250 and many weekends worked.
I prepared a video in Italian and subtitled in English.
- Autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC)
- Refractory Tiles
- Refractory mortar
- OSB Panel
- Scrap wood
Tools: Trowels, Wood saw, buckets, angle grinder
Step 1: Remove Old Barbecue
Clean the area from the rubble of the old barbecue, build the new concrete base and wait for it to dry, wetting it with water to prevent cracks
Step 2: Build the Structure With AAC
We begin the construction of the barbecue structure using AAC and mortar blocks. We check with the spirit level that the blocks are aligned.
Step 3: Build the Roof
Meanwhile we are waiting for the structure to dry we build the roof of our barbecue
Step 4: Barbecue Finishing
We plaster the structure by inserting a net that will reinforce the structure.
Step 5: Complete the Wood Oven
We clothe the wood oven with refractory tiles and refractory mortar.
Step 6: Tiling Structure
We tile the structure of our hybrid barbecue with tiles recovered from previous projects in order to facilitate cleaning from soot and fat due to cooking meat
Step 7: First Ignition
We just have to make the first ignitions gradually so as to allow the refractory materials to adapt and not be damaged
Step 8: Final Result
We just have to enjoy some good grills and tasty pizzas with friends.
